DURABRAND 2.0 CH USB COMPUTER SPEAKERS

I recently purchased some Durabrand 2.0 CH USB COMPUTER SPEAKERS at Wal-mart. I had recently updated my Dell Computer to run on a new Windows XP Home Edition I operating system. My computer does not have internal speakers so I installed the purchased speakers and I attached them to my computer with the USB connection and the green connection cord to the sound card. All I hear coming from the speakers is a scratchy sound like just air. It could be that I might have to update the driver to the sound card, which I did from the device manager in the computer; but that did not work. I also tried the speakers from the Dell computer at work and they work just fine without me having to change anything on the computer at work. So, does this mean, I need to do some changes or downloads to my computer?...I need help.

    I HAVE EVERY THING IN AND ITS TELLING ME THAT YOU STILL NEED TO INSTALL!

    I purchased the same product a few days ago. I hear the audio alright, however there is a constant scraching/ static noise when there is no audio.
    the only way to stop is to remove the usb cable/ audio cable

I work at a church as a Systems Administrator, and when I came here, there were 2 pairs of the speakers sitting around, one still in the box, I would assume ready to be used. I've also discovered that several of our users have these same speakers on their desk. On every pair I've tried, on all different computers, old Compaqs, to new Dells, to a brand new custom built computer, and even on a Mac, they all produce the same nasty, scratchy static, even with the volume turned all of the way down. In short, I would say this: these Durabrand speakers are total garbage. If you can, just return them to Walmart. For probably 5 bucks more at Walmart or elsewhere (check newegg.com or tigerdirect.com), you can get some real speakers that actually work. I bought some $16 Altec Lansings on Tiger Direct to replace these. To repeat: don't bother with the Durabrand USB powered speakers!

Try going to control panel, the system icon, hardware tab, divice manager, check to see if your sound card does not have a yellow ! icon next to it, if it does try right click, go to properties, and reinstalling it, it does help if the computer is hooked to the internet so it can find it automaticly over the internet.

I recently purchased Durabrand 2.0 CH USB computer speakers at Wal-Mart. When I hooked them up to my computer all I got was a sound like a scratchy sound. My computer does not have internal speakers and may not have a sound driver installed either. This is a company computer so I can't do alot of downloading. So what or is there a best way for me to get my new speakers up and running.

The speakers may not be compatible with your sound card. Check your devices for the sound card that you currently have, and then look it up online to assure compatibilty -- if the speakers worked on another computer, this may be the problem.

I hope that this helps.

I just got the logitech z323 speakers for my computer and i wanted to see if i could hook them up to my sony flat screen. i was wondering if there is a way to do that and if so how?


Logitech speakers connect with a cable that fits into something like an iPod or computer (Usually with a green tip). If your TV uses the usual 3 connectors (White Red and Yellow) you can go to the store (Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Online, etc.) and purchase a converter that will convert the Red White and Yellow cables to the Green cable. These are cheap and involve no electronics, but make sure that you buy one that has a male to female connection (will plug IN to your TV and has an opening to plug the green cable into)

Is there a way to connect my Dell MMS 5650 speakers to a Macbook Pro laptop or a wireless router? Where can I find cables for converting? Thanks!


The speakers should directly connect to the "line-out" socket on your Macbook computer, without any need for adapters.

I have _never_ seen a wireless router that had _any_ "audio" capability -- what you're asking for seems to be unreasonable.

Any "Dollar Store" or the "big-box" stores (such as Best Buy, Office Depot, Staples, Future Shop, Wal-Mart) should have adapter-cables.

Static in the sound


The static is called "line noise". It happens when there is not a lot of protection between the copper wiring that carries the signals and the outside. One way for manufacturers to save money is to put just a very thin piece of protection around the copper wires, with no insulation. Just copper wiring and a thin piece of rubber or plastic. So that is why you hear the static noise, the wires are cheaply made and cannot keep out the signals they interfere with it...hence the cheap price. Wal Mart is good about giving refunds, bring it back and get a better made system. It might cost a little more but the sound will be what you enjoy.

Need home theater hooked to TV with built in DVD


This is the easiest way 2 explain it. Hook up on the home theater should be labeled in and out. same as on the tv. The TV might no have that feature as the DVD is built in. You might just have an option for sound from the TV/DVD to the home theater. Again OUT from TV IN to receiver. Same with any other device set up.

No audio device detected


Ok when you plugged in the USB sound did it "see" it... did it ask for "Drivers" Because this device MUST have drivers.. also ya may have to disable any onboard sound device ya may have via the BIOS setup menu. Generally these USB sound devices are real easy to install and use.. try it on another PC to be sure it is OK.. GL

Speaker won't work


Sija
First things First:
1) check your connectors back on the PC, I presume you use windows XP and sound drivers installed **
2) plug the speakers cable on back or front of your PC in the green (usually) connector.
3) see if sound is NOT mute on mixer , multimedia in control panel.**
4) If you can Enter your BIOS, try to enable sound, for onboard sound, if apply**
good Luck
